Bio

Hi everyone!

I am currently working towards my BFA in Communication Design. I absolutely love our design community at citytech! Shoot me a message if you’d like to work together on a project!

We’re entering a time in which sense of community might start feeling like its falling apart so its up to us to keep it flowing by inspiring one another through our work!

In this course, students learn to refine their conceptual thinking, and the ability to apply design concepts across various media channels. This course challenges students to think and strategically apply campaign ideas. At this stage, students choose a media placement and incorporate it into the solution. The course also introduces the collaborative relationship between Art Director and Copywriter. Student teams brainstorm, develop copy, art direct and pitch ideas in teams.
